Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it didn't perform as badly in the area of nursing. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B- for that area. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's second most respectable category is short-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed somewhat badly. In forming these short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home offers far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care score. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated 65.454544 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly below the national average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection rating. We recommend you scrutinize the level of severity of the deficiencies. Tragically, this nursing home had a category L deficiency. This type of deficiency indicates multiple widespread threats to patient safety or health. This type of deficiency is very damaging to a facility's inspection score. We are also concerned by the fact that this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
